I’m a visual artist from East Tennessee living in New Orleans cultivating a unique process by working with acrylic & latex paints, pastels, colored pencils, and other traditional media on large wood panels. Shaped by Appalachian culture, underlying themes of opioid & alcohol abuse, religion & legalism, faith, fear, and death all find their way into the work. My paintings & practice are influenced by artists Mark Rothko, Francis Bacon, Edward Hopper, and Hilma af Klint. Creatively I work towards honest expression by allowing my work to evolve and mature naturally.
